Confronting Cyberterrorism: Tackling Political Aspects of Cybersecurity

Association for International Affairs in cooperation with the U.S. Office of Naval Research Global, Estonian Embassy in the Czech Republic and the NATO Public Diplomacy Division organizes an international conference and expert workshops on cyber security. Recently, it has become a much debated issue. After the attacks on Estonia and Georgia, cyber attacks turned to be a serious security threat and the topic was raised to the very top of security agendas of both Euro-Atlantic institutions. The issue of cybersecurity turns out difficult to be comprehensively managed, as it covers many different, seemingly disparate areas.

The conference and workshops entitled "Confronting Cyberterrorism: Tackling Political Aspects of Cybersecurity" aim at bringing together guests from various fields of expertise, such as IT specialists, lawyers, politicians, security and defence experts, representatives of academia, policy and opinion makers, and thus to create an interdisciplinary forum allowing to discuss the increasingly striking question of cyberterrorism in a complex and timely manner. Distinguished guests will primarily focus on problems of the decision-making process in reaction to politically motivated cyberattacks, taking into account its multiple dimensions, from the technical through legal to political aspects and international cooperation.
